Notes/Commercial Description:
A sour ale with 2 lbs. of Stone Farms Passion Fruit per Barrel. There is lots of red and rosé wine flavor here, as well as plenty of oak. Some acetic sharpness and lactic acid sourness in the flavor and on the nose. Tropical fruit flavors from the Passion Fruit, and a distinct guava and berry note from the two types of wine barrels make for a distinctive, intensely fruity beer.

I am drinking this on tap. Not a big nose but there is some fruit and light tartness.
Pours reddish amber under a 1” off-white foam cap. It is lacy with some legs.
Has a rich tropical fruit palate, some melon finished by an assertive, bitter, citrusy hop finish.
Medium body and medium high carbonation.

Stone Reason Be Damned Aged In Red Wine Barrels on tap at the 2014 Most Arrogant Bar Bash (Barleys in Greenvillle, SC).

Pours a beautiful, clear dark copper with an excellent head and lacing.

Excellent wine barrel effects. Fruity/floral aroma. Great complexity and balance. Both tart and sweet. Dry finish. Tastes better than it smells until the aftertaste when too much wine barrel remains.

O: This sipper is interesting and complex
